THOMSON STATION, N.S.—Nova Scotia police say it’s one of many quickest speeds they’ve ever clocked: A younger Quebec man was allegedly caught driving 232 kilometres an hour on the Trans-Canada Freeway.
Cpl. Dal Hutchinson says officers had been conducting radar enforcement on Freeway 104 in Thomson Station, N.S., round midday Saturday after they noticed two automobiles that seemed to be racing.
An officer clocked one automobile driving 159 kilometres an hour, and a 29-year-old man from Lakeside, N.S., was issued a ticket with a positive of $410.
A second officer clocked the opposite automobile driving 232 kilometres an hour — a whopping 122 kilometres over the velocity restrict.
A 19-year-old man from Quebec was charged with stunting — which carries a positive of $2,422.50 — and his licence was suspended and automobile seized.
He stated driving quick impacts your response time, and it’s not ordinary for bears, deer and different wildlife to cross on that stretch of freeway.
“We’re educated on a closed monitor for driving at excessive charges of velocity and at the same time as a police officer, we don’t journey at that charge of velocity,” stated Hutchinson.
“What’s going by way of an individual’s thoughts on the time, who is aware of.”
Hutchinson says it’s one of many quickest speeds the pressure has on report, and the best he’s seen in his 14-year profession.
